Birmingham 2022 has unveiled a schedule for the Gymnastics programme for the Commonwealth Games with the action starting in exactly nine days time.
The schedules, details of which have now been added to the Birmingham 2022 website, reveal the subdivisions that the teams will compete in during the first couple of days of competition, with places in the Individual All-Around, Apparatus Finals and Team Finals up for grabs.
The Men’s schedule, which begins on 29 July, has three subdivisions with 18 nations and territories competing in total, with the third subdivision featuring the medallists in the team competition from Gold Coast 2018 - England, Canada and Scotland, plus New Zealand, Australia and Cyprus.
The Women’s Artistic competition begins the following day on 30 July and this contains four subdivisions with four teams in each. Scotland feature in the second, whilst England, who won team silver four years ago, and Wales are in the fourth subdivision, alongside 2018 gold medallists, Canada, and Australia who won team bronze in the Gold Coast.
The Men’s and Women’s All-Around Finals will take place on Sunday 31 July and then the individual Apparatus Finals will be held across the 1 and 2 August.
The Rhythmic Gymnastics programme lasts for three days starting on Thursday 4 August and the 13 nations competing have been divided across two subdivisions.
Out of the home nations, England and Scotland feature in the first subdivision, with Wales in subdivision three, alongside Canada and the three team medallists from Gold Coast 2018 – Cyprus (gold), Malaysia (silver) and Australia (bronze).
Once the team competition is complete on 4 August, the focus will switch to the Individual All-Around Final on Friday 5 August and the Individual Apparatus Finals on Saturday 6 August.
